    These 2 have gotten in, seen off the initial tough period, now they must go on and score big hundreds and dont leave it for others... if they leave it for others u may or may not get to a big score..
    Its a good time period to cash in on the hard work they put in seeing off Anderson and Broad..

    He averages 56 in the domestic, got 12000 runs in the domestic, he is something reason why he is recalled and at 6, he wont have full chance to get a big score... atleast give him proper time to score a big 100.. At 6, he would be batting with tail mostly and you know our tail...

    Hmm but Asad is more experienced and bats at 5. 6 is ok for Fawad especially as he is making his comeback after 11 years so don’t want him in too early. Ideally when the ball is a bit old he can bat.

    I would back Fawad to score a 100 if he bats at 5 regardless..

    Dropped catches are a part of the game.. Shan had dropped catches too but he hung in and scored those 150 runs..

    I agree Fawad is coming after a long time.. and its a gamble of sorts making him bat at 5... slowly take him to 5 if he scores consistently and topples Asad from 5 position..

    If we take that gamble and he scores a 100, it can pay off too..

    But if he fails, then it might be curtains for him too so we have to be careful a bit..

    Be careful Azhar.. it takes one delivery to get u out... it takes so much hard work to see off that new ball.. After lunch will be time to cash in on the hard work..

    Abid ke pass strike rahe to acha hai is period mein.. Abid is looking more confident than Azhar right now.. Azhar is able to see off this period, he will score big..

    Abid has a tendency of going after deliveries outside off stump.. he loves that cover drive just like Babar Azam.. u have to shut this shot if u have to be successful in England,,.

    They have seen off difficult early morning period. I think they should send Fawad at 5 now...

    If u will take the risk and send Fawad at 5, there is a great chance he will score a century imo.. u have to take some risk to gain a lot..

    Its overcast. These two will have to keep fighting in this session too. Atleast need to see off initial burst again. But much easier than first session.
